Well, Johnny, you will be surprised to hear that the RCMP has about 1,500 members in Ontario, not including the Ottawa area. Pick a large JFO in Ontario and it is probably run by or supported by the RCMP.
Yes, the RCMP polices some less desireable spots around the country. However, you should check out Red Deer, Jasper and Banff, Alberta, Burnaby, North Vancouver, Whistler, Kelowna, Kamloops and Salmon Arm in BC to name a few before you jump to any conclusions about RCMP postings.
As far as pay goes, I'll put my $62,400 plus about $15,000 in annual overtime against your paycheque any day. What is your leave like? I get 200 hours. Did I mention that our sick time is virtually unlimited?
